Haha this may sound like a troll post but it is not. Built my gaming pc, has an FX-8350, 8gb 1866mhz RAM, and a Sapphire Radeon HD 7870.

So I went to play some good old minecraft as I wait for the huge Steam game files to install and I see it is only running at 60fps.

However I do have a 60hz TV that I am using via HDMI, so is the game simply locking itself as a framerate that the tv can display or should I be concerned about my hardware?

Thanks!

Play other games. If you are getting normal frame rates in everything else I wouldn't be to worried.

How you will get 60+ fps as your tv is 60hz.your fps will never reach more than 60.

I think there is a frame rate cap, maybe you have that on. To ASHISH, we mea it is rendering 60+ fps.

Fixed! Had to take performance off "Balanced" and set it to "Max FPS" in the settings of the game.

AMD drivers tend to force vsync on known non-intensive games.

Nothing to worry about.

I had the same problem with my msi 7870 overclocked, I updated my java now (32 + 64 bit) and getting 150-300fps now.
